With training camp just a few weeks away, the Bruins are looking at every available option to help the team in the present and the future. Inviting players to camp to get a glimpse of their skill level and what they can bring to the ice is what this time of year is all about.
While the Bruins roster may be set for this upcoming season, it is always essential to have capable depth waiting down in the AHL, awaiting their turn for an opportunity whenever it becomes available.
Yesterday the Bruins made their second professional tryout signing of the summer as Bruins’ general manager Don Sweeney is looking to bring in talent wherever it may be.
As per CapFriendly, the Bruins have signed forward Keltie Jeri-Leon to a PTO:
The 22-year-old forward tallied 19 goals and 35 points through 57 games played with the Maine Mariners of the ECHL and just one point through six games with the Providence Bruins and Abbotsford Canucks of the AHL last season.
The Kelowna, British Columbia native is versatile when it comes to his position as he can slot in and play both right-wing and center. He went undrafted throughout his eligibility and now hopes to latch on to the Bruins organization. He will have to prove himself during camp to earn a permanent spot in the organization and continue to showcase his talent throughout the year in Providence. At 22 years old, he certainly has plenty of time to develop skills and become a solid player in the future.
